    What is happening in this country. No day passes without an accident. RTSA where the hell are you. ZP Traffic just busy extorting money at useless road blocks.

    hi I am Joshua and I live in mpongwe, I think the main problem is that the road is a 2 lane (1 for going, 1 for coming )and its dangerous for a highway to have roads like that and its more dangerous at night
    The solution I might suggest is to have at least a four way lane (2 for going , 2 for coming)

    drivers why do you take advantage of the road? Were you not taught where you did your driving lessons that even a pedestrian is entitled to use the road?
